“I think it is a huge stress relief to have it before winter break. I would always say I will study over break but I never did anyways.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aimee Barkalow, Math teacher“I think it could be good for some students since they won’t have to think about school for two weeks. I think it will be bad for others since they won’t have their break to use to study. Instead, they have to cram studying into their normal daily routine, which includes doing homework and studying for tests. It will be interesting to compare the final results from last year and this year.”
